Former Boxing Champ Ricardo Mayorga's MMA debut overturned to No Contest

Al Bello

Ricardo Mayorga's controversial win during his MMA debut has been overturned, and he has also been "suspended".

Former boxing champion, Ricardo Mayorga carried over his controversial ways when he made his MMA debut earlier this month. Not only did he miss weight by 20 lbs, Mayorga also ended the fight by landing an illegal knee to his opponent's spine as he was trying to get out of a submission attempt. If that wasn't bizarre enough, the referee then awarded him with a TKO victory even if the fight was ended after an illegal blow.

That was all amended today though, as it was announced by the Nicaraguan MMA commission that the victory has been overturned, and is now considered as a No Contest.

Not that it would really mean anything, but the 39-year-old fighter has also been "suspended" for competing in MMA for 3 months.

If you missed the fight, you can watch the entire fight, including the controversial finish here.
